I play CoH with Clan via Hamachi or at least we used to. We don’t play CoH a lot but every now and then we take a break for our normal FPS titles. It all started when Hamachi wanted us to update. We are all legal owners of CoH and connecting through Relic equals lag while LAN via Hamachi gives us smooth game play. After the update, guys were joining my Hamachi and I could not see them as anywhere, yet some could see me and each other. I had to create a new network and start from scratch. We all see each other, but now when I host a CoH game via LAN, no one can see my game. Other have tried to host and it doesn't work for them either. None of us have changed our networks or any hardware. Has THQ figure out a way to thwart Hamachi, or did the updates from Hamachi mess things up. Next test is to find an older version and get everyone on the same page and run some more test.

Ok.. in order to get CoH to work well with Hamachi you have to make sure that you do not get the update to 1.0.2.2 stick with 1.0.2.1, even with 1.0.2.1 people have trouble and that is because CoH checks in your primary subnet for Lan games and most of the time that will be your actual internet connection. Very easy to fix.. all you have to do is go to My Computer -> Control Panel -> Network Connections

At the top of the window where it says File, Edit, etc.. click Advanced -> Advanced Settings

It will pop up a new window, inside of that window click on the Hamachi connection and click the green arrow on the right until Hamachi is all the way up on the top of the list.. everyone that is playing CoH over hamachi should really do this if they havent already..

After that step is done restart your computer in order for the Network Settings to take effect, connect to Hamachi, open CoH and enjoy!

Hope this helps, it worked for me, Phrozen

Thanks for the advice, mine was already at the top, but I will inform the rest of my friends to check theirs. We actually got it to work by uninstalling the latest, and we all installed an older vs. 1.01.5 that fixed the problem. Weird part is we can figure out why we have so much lag grace through Relic, but its lag free via Hamachi. Relic certianly must have some kind of host matching issues.
